Welcome back to another round of “Who’s Pips Dating?” This time we welcome investment banker James Matthews, 37, whose family owns the Eden Rock hotel in St. Bart’s.
Matthews, according to the Mirror, was seeing helping Middleton into a taxi a few weeks ago following dinner. Their relationship is going “from strength to strength,” according to friends.
“Pippa and James sat in a secluded booth in the upstairs area, where it was quieter, sharing a bottle of white wine,” a source told the Newspaper of their date at Hakkasan in Mayfair. “They were deep in conversation and only had eyes for each other.
“Pippa was all smiles and kept giggling. They stayed for nearly three hours and didn’t seem to want the meal to end.”
Eton-educated Matthews is chief executive of the Eden Rock Capital Management Group, which the old boy founded in 2001. Matthews’ younger brother, Spencer stars on the posh British reality show, Made In Chelsea (coming November 12th to Style),
Middleton headed to a book signing at Waterstone’s at Canary Wharf in London last Thursday wearing a navy blue Fay coat, Aquatalia suede boots from Russell & Bromley and carrying Modalu‘s “Pippa” bag in black croc. Paws up to the lovely gals at Pippa Middleton for identifying these pieces.
Celebrate releases in the US tomorrow (October 30th).
